Official: Va. Tech Gunman Believed to Be Dead
BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - State police say the gunman who killed a police officer at Virginia Tech appears to have walked into a parking lot and shot the officer during a traffic stop.
Sgt. Robert Carpentieri says it appears that the shooter also was not in the car that was pulled over on Thursday.
The sergeant says another officer later spotted a second person in a parking lot who was alive at the time. That person later died.
